I don't think so. I put it on the list because I hoped someone would
pick it.

Having a real BLAS/LAPACK matrix library would be a good thing.
I couldn't find any libraries with the LGPL license.
Noel Welsh has bindings for MzSGL on Github:
The license for SGL is unfortunately GPL, so I don't
think the SGL library can be distributed with Racket.

I think (hope?) that it is okay to distribute a BSD licensed
with Racket.

I'd love feedback from:
(The matrix operations work on this branch)
